Movie Reviews-MARY J. BLIGE'S MY LIFE
MARY J. BLIGE'S MY LIFE is a celebration, both of the 25th anniversary of her highly acclaimed My Life CD and of her triumph of overcoming her past life to become the Queen of Hip Hop Soul. The movie takes an emotional look at Mary's journey through life, overcoming low self esteem, drug addiction and abusive relationships. The on camera interviews with Mary are the meat of the film and they are some of the most personal insights into her past life that you've ever seen. They are raw and offer a true insight to her humble beginnings as a young girl growing up in the ghetto. One thing that can be said of Mary is that she always keeps it real.
The movie also features personal interviews with Sean "Puffy" Combs, Taraji P. Henson and Alicia Keys. The three add additional insight into the life of Mary J. Blige. MY LIFE also includes interview segments with family and her early music producers.
